Enjoy Three One-Act Plays
Enjoy three one-act plays that explore the pitfalls and possibilities of love in our modern era:
Only You Can Think That features a quirky café owner who serves up strong philosophy with the lattes to an anxiety consultant just trying to get out of the rain. In Fragments from the Permanent Collection, a lifetime of love unfolds in the Art Institute where an astronomer falls hard for a secretary at lunchtime. In Shifts, college students working in a bookstore negotiate the world of romance novels while learning that growing up is harder than falling in love.
The plays combine humor and lyricism and range from the absurd to the gently dramatic. Explore the tug of forces that create a continental displacement of the heart. Does love increase over time or is it bound to be a matter of diminishing returns? Is love the cube root of dreams?
Shifts is appearing in Chicago after receiving its world premiere this last winter at Lawrence University, directed by Timothy X. Troy, in the first bi-annual Fred Gaines Playwrights Series.
